I just received my Miracle Mirror and am curious about something. I read on another board that the inventor of the effect (Oswald Rae) originally performed it by openly sliding out the mirror from the frame, and then openly showing the hinges that make the frame fold. He then slid the mirror into the frame, and the frame into the bag, and then did the effect the standard way. His logic was that he didn't want the audience to be concerned about the frame in any way. He wanted them to concentrate only on the mirror.
I remember Henning received some criticism when he took the mirror out when he performed it years ago. What do you think? Does this tip the method? Seems a bit too bold to me. Any help or input will be appreciated.
